I can't believe it, Daily Word. You always run into the same pothole!

I'm needing a punisher smiley.

Here is the correct way to write what you posted:

The highways in my country have a lot of potholes, and I've used these highways extensively in this year. They're dangerous.

carreteras = highways
A plural subject needs a plural form of the verb (have instead of has).
The contraction it're doesn't exist. You should have used they're (they are) instead, because the subject (highways) is plural and so is its pronoun (they).
